About to begin "THE PURGE." No, not the movie, but my video game collection.

This is only 3 of about maybe 7 boxes to sell. I will keep a few boxes worth of stuff I wouldn't/couldn't sell in bulk, and stuff I really just want to keep. This goes back to the Dreamcast days and beyond! 

Thing is, I have two kids now and another on the way. What was once my office/gaming cave will now become a nursery for about a year or more, and stuff that has been sitting unplayed and untouched really has to go. I am taking the easy way out and going to a used game/music/dvd chain. I don't even know how to begin shopping around, as it will take hours for any shop to go through my stuff.

Anyway, just wanted to vent. Who else been down this road?

Sorry you have to get rid of your gaming stuff. Thankfully, I haven't had to do that, but I did purge about a 3rd of my CD collection about a decade ago, along with 90% of my DVD collection, because I had bills to pay. It sucks, but eventually, you learn to let go, and reacquire the stuff you can when it makes sense, and the stuff that you learn to live without, you're probably better off without it anyway. Not sure how comforting that is, but that's what I have to offer.

I keep looking at my game and console collection and try to figure out whether or not I should keep it considering I never have time to play any of it. I haven't even had the time to finish the shelves I started making for the handhelds. But if the past is any indication, in 5-10 years I'll want to get things back that I got rid of. I did the same thing with my drum equipment and MTG, though I got back out of MTG again when I realized no one wanted to just play for fun.
